Have you tried using Process Explorer to look for processes gradually using more and more resources? Does the memory leak happen in safe mode with networking??? Does it happen in safe mode without networking???

There is no process listed to be eating it all and all the processes listed cannot be filling up all the RAM... Here's some screenshots
Do you have IE9 RC installed? If so this very well may be your problem, since microsoft develops IE, it's very integrated with the OS and even when it isnt running, it has the tendency to leech your sys resources. Try uninstalling IE9 and using opera or mozilla (prefer opera personally) and see if that solves your problems

Edit: Also, if you're having problems uninstalling IE9, it's because it's installed as an update... so in your normal Add/Remove Programs (or Programs and Features as it's called in Win7) on the left hand side it will say 'View Installed Updates'.. Select IE9 and uninstall it until a good stable release comes out (not anytime soon)

And if this does not help (or you're still having memory problems) you could always compress your memory to reduce swapped out pages... I'd recommend a program called Memory Booster Gold which offers varying levels of compression, this helps alot if your physical memory usage is above 60% with little/no programs running. But still there is a source to this problem, and at least til you find it, this will help your bogged down system.
